Dirty Jokes and Beer : Stories of the Unrefined


The enigmatic star of the hugely popular Drew Carey Show divulges the secrets of his rise to stardom and his life as a standup comedian in the audiobook versionof Dirty Jokes and Beer: Stories of the Unrefined. Despite the title's promise, this isn't just three hours of filth and debauchery--well, not quite. Carey also shares an unexpected admission about being molested as a child, a surprisingly serious and moving moment. This solemnity, however, is a brief respite from almost three hours of bawdy humor--fables of all things dirty and odes to everything politically incorrect. Carey's jokes are nothing new or original, but he doesn't profess them to be. These are characterizations of people he has met throughout his life: grotesque slobs, cheap hookers, and lousy drunks. They're not exactly inspirational characters, but Carey manages to see--and relate--their funny sides. Carey borrows his jokes from barroom culture, leaving them raw and uncensored. Listening to the tape, you can almost smell the stale tobacco and taste the draft beer. Some listeners will delight in Carey's anecdotes about anatomically astonishing penises and his other jokes, while others may feel slightly nauseated. Dirty Jokes and Beer leaves little middle ground; you'll either love it or rip your headphones off in disgust.

Comedian Drew Carey, star of the eponymous TV show, provides neither a full-scale memoir nor a catalogue of stand-up shtick in Dirty Jokes and Beer: Stories of the Unrefined. Rather, as the title suggests, his book mixes anecdotes, jokes and commentary on TV and fame, all in his cheerily vulgar fashion. The last third of the book is Carey's "pride and joy," "dark" short stories in faux autobiographical style: in one, "Drew" meets a beautiful woman who turns out to be a transvestite.
